Extreme Hardship May Qualify You for a Waiver

A person who has been unlawfully present in the U.S. and who leaves the U.S., may be barred from returning to the U.S., or barred from obtaining permanent residence. U.S. immigration laws include some exceptions from denial of your green card or your visa. For example, if your removal from the United States might cause extreme hardship to your U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident spouse or parent, then you may be able to seek a waiver of your previous unlawful presence in the U.S. We may be able to help you obtain a waiver. We look at the injury that may be caused including health, education, personal or financial support problems. Such hardships may support an immigration waiver.

If you have a criminal conviction at any time in your past, you may need a waiver of that criminal conviction before you can gain your status in the U.S. There is a waiver for extreme hardship suffered by a U.S. citizen or Permanent Resident spouse, parent or child, if you are not given your status. We can help you identify and document such hardship and help you present a properly prepared waiver application.

If you are illegally in the US and are married to a US citizen or the holder of a green card, and you did not previously apply for status, you may need to return to your own country and apply for an immigrant visa through the US consulate there.
